If you hover over a recent file on the Home screen, you should see the file path of where it's supposed to be.

Does that location make sense? Can you use Time Machine or Previous Versions at that location to find the file?

Use a stand alone app to search your drive - on a PC I use Everything and on a Mac File Buddy - they'll find anything, if it's there...
